Recently I was given the opportunity to try CLIF SHOT BLOKS and write up a CLIF SHOT BLOKS review. These gummy energy chews are made by CLIF Bar & Company, which is the same company that makes CLIF Bars and LUNA Bars.
CLIF SHOT BLOKS Review
About CLIF SHOT BLOKS:
CLIF SHOT BLOKS Energy Chews provide an optimum balance of carbohydrates and electrolytes. They’re easy to chew and to use with their convenient, performance-friendly packaging. CLIF SHOT BLOKS come in eight flavors. They are usually priced per packet or you can buy them in bulk for less.
CLIF SHOT BLOKS Review
Taste: I have tried three packs of the CLIF SHOT BLOKS (Black Cherry, Citrus and Mountain Berry) and haven’t had any complaints. I’ve been especially partial to the CLIF SHOT BLOKS with caffeine in them – as you all know I’m a coffee lover at heart.
The blocks come caffeine-free, with a half-serving of caffeine added, or full strength with a full-serving of caffeine. As a kid was never really into “gummy worms” or the like, but I actually enjoyed the taste and texture of the CLIF SHOT BLOKS.
Function: Typically an athlete would use these CLIF SHOT BLOKS as fuel on a long run or endurance event. While I haven’t tried the CLIF SHOT BLOKS out yet in any races, I have used them during two of my long runs (7 and 8 miles each) and have had no issues.
I can’t say I felt any “jolt” of energy from the CLIF SHOT BLOKS, but I also wasn’t dragging.

Nutrition: During the course of my CLIF SHOT BLOKS review, I learned they mostly contain carbohydrates for fuel. They come in a 6-pack which is two servings. Each serving is 100 calories each, or the equivalent of one typical energy gel.
After writing this review I began buying CLIF SHOT BLOKS on my own and continue to use them during long runs and when I run half-marathons.
I haven’t found a flavor I do not like, but if you are trying CLIF SHOT BLOKS for the first time I would recommend trying the CLIF SHOT BLOKS variety pack to find your favorite flavors.
